Description

Easy and Fast 4 Mile Course

Our 4-mile race will begin and end at Patriots Park in quiet Coventry, Connecticut. The race course is an old favorite of local runners from many years back when the Columbus Day Fall Classic race was held in Coventry. Fittingly, the race starts at Patriots Park and passes the Memorial Green, which is home to the Connecticut Vietnam Memorial and the Captain Nathan Hale Monument. This Connecticut Veterans Day Patriot Race has grown beyond the town's boundary and is now a statewide event.
